Sarah Palin Tells Hannity A Palin/Bachmann Ticket “Sounds Kind Of Cool”

Reported by Ellen - April 8, 2010 -

Near the end of a three-segment GOP hate-fest/campaign promotion thinly disguised as a news report from a Michele Bachmann rally with special guest Sarah Palin yesterday (4/7/10), Sean Hannity asked whether either woman was considering a run for the presidency in 2012. With video.

As has become the norm at Hannity’s live-audience events, the crowd was a sea of white faces. The StarTribune.com noted that the Republican Party gave out more than 10,000 free tickets but that the “cavernous” Minneapolis Convention Center hall was not full. I checked the floor plans. None of the halls there, even if they combined spaces, hold 10,000 people. Associated Press reported what the “we report, you decide” network did not: That Bachmann faces what is expected to be a tough, expensive race for re-election. In fact, Bachmann took some heat from her opponents for holding the event outside her district - another fact the "we report, you decide" network forgot to report. But I'm sure Hannity only showed up because of the news value of the event.

In a blatant ploy to rouse the crowd, Hannity asked the women, “Are either one of you considering a run for the presidency in 2012?”

Of course, the crowd turned ecstatic. Before anyone could answer, Hannity revised his question by asking the crowd. “How many of you would like to see a Palin/Bachmann ticket?”

Trying to be heard over the roar, Palin answered, “That sounds kind of cool.” She added, “I’m not going to close any doors… Michelle and I both have strong faith… and at the same time putting our lives in God’s hands and asking him for direction.”

Psst, Palin, I think God is telling you to run!

Bachmann said, “The world is her oyster if she wants to run, I think that she has tremendous support from the American people.”

Well, except for the 71% who think she’s not qualified. Polls consistently show that the majority of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of her, too. But as far as I’m concerned? Palin would be a fabulous pick. And who better to complement her candidacy than Michele Bachmann? You go, girls!
